Marginally off-topic ...

For those concerned about SpyWare, ZoneLabs (www.zonelabs.com)
offers ZoneAlarm, a personal firewall that not only blocks
unwanted incomming connections, but lets you know when something
is trying to connect _out_ of your computer.  Even better,
although there is a commercial "Pro" version of ZoneAlarm
there is a free version that does at least that much for you.


Now you can cut off all spyware at the source.

(btw: even if you use a dial-in ISP, like AOL, a personal
firewall is a good idea ...)
